Ridesharing, which includes carpooling and vanpooling, is a great way for commuters to save time and money getting to and from work. Ridesharing also helps reduce air pollution and ease traffic congestion because it can lead to fewer cars on the roads. Commuters who carpool usually use their own cars. Those who use a vanpool usually use rented vans (often supplied by employers, non-profit organizations, or government agencies). Many transit agencies and community transportation organizations offer ridematching services, connecting travelers with similar schedules and routes who are interested in ridesharing.
